Customer Testimonials

Jay provided evidence in court that enabled me to successfully dispute my property taxes. I recommend him as an expert witness to many of my clients.
Jack Addams
The SC DOT was forcing me to sell them my property in order to make way for a new highway. Hembree Valuation Services helped me to negotiate a fair market value for my property and we settled with the State. I couldn't have done it without him!
Abigail Harding
South Carolina Property Owner
I was approached by an investor to buy my apartment building. I wasn't aware of the market value until Jay appraised my property. He turned around the report quickly and was very professional.
